Maria Adolfsson returns with the successful Doggerland series, the first book selling over 50 000 copies

It’s Christmas time, and Karen is still signed of work sick following the injuries she incurred in Doggerland: Deception. A man is found dead in a disused quarry, and several aspects of the circumstances indicate that his death was no accident

.

A bad bout of flu hits the police force, and Karen is asked if she would consider returning to work early. Relieved to be able to avoid the seasonal festivities, Karen agrees and makes her way to Noorö, where her only investigational resources appear to be a few more or less cooperative colleagues from the local police district.

On New Year’s Eve another murder occurs, and the investigation unearths links to the whiskey distillery located on the island. Perhaps the millennia-old stone ship monument, located on the northernmost tip of Noorö, might also play a role.

In all of this, Karen’s main concern is her relatives on the island, who have a somewhat lax approach to abiding by the law, may have something to do with the murder.

Doggerland: Storm Warning is the second book in a series, with Detective Karen Eiken Hornby in the lead. The setting of Doggerland is a creation of the author’s imagination; a clever play on Dogger Bank. Its culture and language have roots in Britain and Scandinavia, making the ideal spot to set a Nordic Noir series with a twist.
